Monitoring poverty, hunger, and health; observing trends in education and gender equality; better understanding the effects of climate change; and protecting human rights are all critical challenges that we face today. Much of the difficulty in confronting these challenges is in finding the foundational data to begin to understand the problems better.
These issues concern the location and changes in population, homes, schools, vegetation, infrastructure, energy and other features on the ground. And to better understand how these components impact each situation, civil governments as well as global humanitarian and development organizations are turning to satellite imagery and geospatial data for comprehensive maps and context. With the rich information contained in high-resolution satellite imagery, organizations, analysts, and even locals harnessed through crowdsourcing can build maps that tell a new, more comprehensive story at any scale.
